Flags or variables?

Hi,

I need some help and am not sure if I shall use flags or some other practical solution exists. Either ways, I need your advice teaching me how to do it please.

I need to see most recent 3 days' sales in product breakdown and additionally, I would like to see the same for 7 days earlier. I may need to have most recent 3 days and -7 days adjusted based on my selections (or might not need, am not sure yet).

This is what I would like to do with QlikView :

Attached is the qvw file for your easy reference. (table is in the inline script, no tab elements)

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Best regards,

Hi Kaushi Solanki,

Is there a way that I can show only last 3 days and 7 days earlier data only? If you refer to the excel pivot table I included in my post; I would like to show only 31/7, 4/8,5/8 and 6/8 data. Additionally, can I get their averages to find out average sales?

Best regards,

Hi,

Use the below expression:

Sum({<DATE = {">=\$(=Date(Max(DATE)-6))<=\$(=max(DATE))"} - {">=\$(=Date(Max(DATE)-5)) <=\$(=Date(Max(DATE)-3))"} >}Sales)

Hi venugopal4s,

Thank you very much, it solved my problem as desired.

Now, how can I get the average of values pertaining to these 4 dates only?

Can you also teach me how I shall interpret your expression? How can I make it independent from selected dates? Just replacing \$ to 1? Is this a set analysis expression?

Thanks so much and have a nice day.

Hi,

I think, that can be possible when we use a variable and store the current max date value. By using this variable in our expression, we can solve the probelm. Please see the attachment.

Hi venugopal4s,

I now understood how you handled the independent dates; thanks so much

Any idea how I can get averages of these 4 records? (most recent 3 dates and also 1 week earlier)?

Best wishes,
